About 50ft to the left of the start of Salathe is a sort of obvious line up the slab with good "steps" and a couple bolts. Getting past the second bolt is sort of tricky, then you traverse left into a crack system. The crack continues through a flare before it becomes just a seam. Good edges appear out right just in time and face climbing takes you past one more bolt to a small left-facing corner/overlap. Continue up and left to a bolted anchor. Rappel with 2 ropes.
This is easily toproped after climbing Reed's Leads. It's probably a bit of a spicy lead, but it looked like it was all there. The lead bolts are starting to show their age a bit. The anchor bolts are good.
Pro to 1" with extra cams and nuts ranging from tiny to .5"
